6:17am
hagerstown and downtown. 76 in the district, 68 earl ton. 69 west minister and columbia. so here is this big dome of high pressure. look behind me. now we're starting to see some movement. this is good size front that's sitting out over the upper plane states. it is going to be moving our way. by friday it's going to be north of the region. when you look at big geographic area, i think globally. it's close enough to start exerting influence on earl. let's talk specifically about earl in a second. this day we go to 96 degrees. clear skies, 64. tomorrow we tie the record. record of days above 90 in this city well it goes back to 1988. tomorrow will be the 54th day temperatures above 90. now let's look at the five day. once we get to friday, there is a potential right now that in
6:18am
baltimore can be partly sunny and 92 that will be the new record. there's still a lot of question marks friday's forecast because of earl. one thing is for sure, once he passes it's going to get sunny it's going to get cooler. temperatures are going to go with low 80s. we're close to labor day weekend. 81, 80 and 82 degrees. now let's specifically talk about hurricane earl. first off we've got bad air quality because of the heat in the region this day. take a look down to the south. state of virginia is now put hurricane watch in effect for their border all the way up to the border of maryland. earl at 5:00 was downgraded to cat 3 storm. winds from 145 to 127 but the computer is positive it's going back to cat 4 as it hits the warm gulf stream. we'll see winds increase again to 140 miles per hour at the 11:00 update. remember everything i'm telling

6:20am
going to danielle staying out in the center of the ocean. by the end of the weekend you're going to have both storms up here. imagine the swells from virginia beach frankly all the way up through long island. so once the storm passes, now we have another set of issues because of tropical weather just southeast of the mid atlantic at this time. wow, it's busy. don, take it away. >> here drive here with sharon. >> fortunately not so busy on the road. we have a few minor problems. we have confirmed we do have some downed wires and they are blocking old york road. we also have that disabled vehicle on 543 at route 22. there is a look at your drive times and speed starting to see some very minor delays down to 53 miles per hour with 12 minute drive time there. there's aloof like at 95. traffic still light.
